SATISFIED CUSTOMER LETTER

From: Joe Kalke 

Bruce,

Here's a pic of the engine installation in my T bucket. 

 At this time I would like to thank The Engine Factory, especially Matt & Brad for the outstanding customer service I received with the carburetor issue I had the other day.  Customer service like this is hard to find anywhere.

Thanks again,

Joe Kalke

 

SATISFIED CUSTOMER LETTER

From: Jim Unland
Subject: 347 Stroker

Hi Everyone,
I just wanted to write and say that  even though I took delivery of my 347
stroker engine almost 6 months ago, I finally got my Factory Five '33 Hot
Rod assembled to the point that I got to start the engine for the first time
yesterday!  It started right up and runs great!!  We took the car on a
little "go kart" ride also and the engine just purred.

Thank you so much for your help with my car.  I called a couple of times to
get some advice and your staff always was able to answer my questions and
get me the information I needed to continue with the car build.  Your
customer service is excellent.
Thanks again.
Jim Unland

SATISFIED CUSTOMER LETTER

 

Hi Matt,

I just wanted to send a brief message to let you know that my 350/375 hp
engine is running to perfection.  Thanks to you, my 82 Vet now has the
power, the muscle, the punch that I've always wanted.  : }

Its not often that one can do business with a company that actually lives up
to their reputation.   I'm happy to say that you and the folks at The Engine
Factory have done just that.  Everything arrived on time and as described on
your website, which by the way, is a very useful site. 

Its been a real pleasure doing business with you.  Your knowledge,
professionalism, suggestions, support, etc. has far exceeded my
expectations.  Moreover, your accessibility and willingness to help during
and after my transaction is very reassuring.

So, thanks Matt for making this a very pleasurable experience. You guys are
phenomenal!!
